Trend Alert: Light Denim  

With warmer temperatures come lighter colors and jeans are no exception. In addition to gray denim, light-wash denim is re-emerging from the back of the closet.

Here's what Who What Wear had to say about the looks of the celebs above:
As for the light denim that's popular with paparazzi-favorites, we're happy to report that there's not a single shape or style dominating this trend thus far. Star stylist Rachel Zoe showed off one of the wider pairs when she stepped out in Los Angeles last month wearing 7 For All Mankind's Super Flare Jeans ($180) in Ibiza wash. Zoe expertly played with proportion in her outfit; we love how she layered a tunic-length tank and cropped Ralph Lauren jacket over her belled jeans. While her exact pair is from 7FAM's Spring 08 collection, Twenty8Twelve's Celine Flare Jeans ($290) or Mango's Birkin Jeans ($80) will give you a similar look. Or you could pick up 7 For All Mankind's classic Bell Bottoms ($125) in the California wash and fade them yourself!

In addition to wide-leg or bell-bottom options, some celebs, like Lindsay Lohan and Mischa Barton, opt for slim-and-shredded styles. Lohan was spotted in an ankle-zip pair of Balmain's Balmain Acid wash ripped jeans ($2165) with Givenchy's Open-Toe Elastic Cord Wedge Booties ($795) while en route to a meeting in LA last month. Meanwhile in London, Mischa Barton turned up at the launch of her new handbag line wearing ASOS' Iggy Full Ripped Skinny Jeans ($50) with an equally goth-gorgeous pair of shoes, specifically Alexander McQueen's Grommet Booties ($1249). J Brand's Acid Wash Ripped Jeans ($218) and Silence & Noise's Ripped Twig Jean ($68) approximate the look of Lohan's haute jeans, while Current/Elliott's The Skinny Jean ($224) offers a stateside variation on Barton's British pair.

Our final example for today's trend comes courtesy of Rihanna, who recently wore Vintage1's Skinny Jeans ($198) while out and about in Manhattan. The brand (previously known as Pratt's Motor Spirit) will hit shortly, so in the meantime you can contemplate what sort of accoutrement you want to wear with your moto-style jeans. Or if you're impatient, just check out Unknown Factory's Biker Skinny Jeans ($198). The detailing is subtler, but the shade is still super light. Either way, the look is out of this world…
